HOME HEALTHCARE SELECTION AND MONITORING
Based on the client’s individual needs, we can help you select the right home healthcare solution. The level of care will depend on the client’s needs determined after the comprehensive assessment. Levels of care range from skilled nursing services and monitoring more complex health issues. These are performed by registered nurses or licensed practical nurses, to help with the activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, and meal preparation performed by certified nursing assistants or home health aides. Others may only need the services of a homemaker or companion.
HOSPITAL TO HOME TRANSITION PROGRAM
When a client needs to go to the hospital to treat an illness or have surgery, we can help every step of the way. While a client is in the hospital, we can visit and monitor the client’s care and report his/her progress to loved ones. We can also take care of anything at the client’s home that needs attention from cleaning, repairs, and maintenance to pet sitting. After discharge, Complete Elder Care monitors the client’s transition from hospital to the rehabilitation facility where patients receive physical and occupational therapy. We will continue to monitor any transfers the patient may go through, whether it is to another rehab facility, an assisted living facility, a nursing home, or home where they may continue to receive physical and occupational therapy as needed. We make sure patients understand what’s going on throughout the process. Patients may also need some assistance from a professional caregiver to assist with the activities of daily life. The patient’s family can rest assured that their loved ones are being watched — whether the family is 10 or 3000 miles away.
